Hello,

I have seen webpages that seem to have a drop shadow around their webpage. It makes the webpage look as if it is raised from the screen instead of being so flat. Can anyone tell me how this is done or point me in the right direction for learning it? What technique is use?

Thanks so much

there are a few ways it can be done, with either one solid image as a background, here is some free images if you are in need: http://www.allfreebackgrounds.com/borders.html (not my site) or you can do it via css , here is a few examples: http://www.dynamicdrive.com/style/searc ... 6814d9664/

Since I noticed that roje0913's link was broken...here's the link for a CSS method to make a background behind an element, I'm not sure it's exactly the same one he/she was pointing to. I'm also not so sure it would look so good for an entire background but I have not implemented that specific method. I just use a simple background image with the drop shadow (.png's with additional scripts to correct IE's problems) and have it repeat via:
Code: [ Select ]
background-image: url(image.gif);
background-repeat: repeat-y;
  1. background-image: url(image.gif);
  2. background-repeat: repeat-y;

Hope that helps.
